Parents or guardians who wish their child to attend a primary school outwith their catchment area will need to apply in writing for a placing request to:
The Area Education Manager,
South Area Education Office,
Parents should enrol their child at the local primary school for the area in which they live, whilst waiting for a response to a placing request. For those outside the catchment area, there is no automatic progression from the primary school to its associated secondary and therefore parents should still enrol their child at the local secondary school for the area in which they live. This should be done well before the child’s entry to the secondary school in August.
